Storm Coverage: Preble County teen nearly hit by falling tree

EATON, Ohio (WDTN) – A few seconds made a big difference for an Eaton teen who almost got struck by a falling tree during Tuesday’s thunderstorm.

The short, but powerful and quick moving storm roared through Preble County sending dozens of trees crashing down on top of homes and into roadways.

The Preble County Sheriff’s Office told 2 NEWS multiple roads were closed after the storm due to fallen limbs, most of which has been cleared, but warned drivers to use caution, because of flying debris. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
